NORWALK, CT — Shawmut Design and Construction, a $1.5-billion national construction management firm, recently celebrated the topping-off of HMTX Industries’ new world headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut. The four-story, 24,000-square-foot project is on track to become the greenest building in the state, with completion slated for 2022.

“This is an exciting milestone for a transformational project, one that embodies the leading-edge capabilities of sustainable, green design,” said Kevin Sullivan, Executive Vice President at Shawmut Design and Construction. “In partnership with McLennan Design, we’re creating a global model for Living Building Challenge projects that will set a precedent for sustainable building for generations to come.”

The HMTX building is designed to become the first Living Building Challenge Petal Certified project in the state of Connecticut — the world’s most stringent green building rating system, which promotes the concept of regenerative design to create spaces that give more than they take.

When complete, the building will be energy positive — with over 100 percent of the building’s power demand coming from on-site PV panels. As a living building, the HMTX facility is intended to be largely self-sufficient, with ultra-efficient envelope and mechanical systems that create a positive impact on the people and natural systems that surround it while producing zero carbon emissions.
